During the COVID-19 crisis, we automatically deferred eligible loan payments for three months, allowing our members to focus on what was really important - their health and family. We donated to local charities that were instrumental in getting food and healthcare supplies to our communities. Most importantly, we made sure our employees were taken care of by paying everyone their full wages and benefits during the entirety of the pandemic, regardless of whether or not they were working.

We believe in boldly supporting our members, community, and staff - not only during trying times, but every day. To us, you are more than just a number on an account - you are a member and part-owner of this credit union.

If we aren't already, we'd love to be your primary financial institution. Here are some of the great banking services and benefits you can take advantage of as a member of American 1:

  • Loan Experts. American 1 specializes in financing and refinancing everyday loans like autos, trucks, boats, RVs, motorcycles, ATVs, tractors, personal loans, and more.
  • Free Simplicity Checking. No annual fees, no minimum balance fees. A free checking account with no strings attached - it's that simple!
  • Locally Serviced Rewards Credit Card. Our Rewards Credit Card earns one point for every $1 you spend - to be used on anything from gift cards and gas discounts to airline tickets and air fryers. Plus, if you ever have a concern with your card, someone right here at American 1 will help you out.
  • Digital Banking Options. With American 1's Online Banking and Mobile App platforms, you can transfer money, pay bills, deposit checks, set alerts, lock your cards if they are lost or stolen, set travel alerts, and so much more. Plus, you can use our cards in your mobile wallet and with a wide variety of payment apps.
  • True Savings. Our True Savings account allows members to set a goal and shares weekly tips on how to save money to achieve that goal! We also have other savings accounts like our Christmas and Vacation clubs, a Member's Choice account, and our Eagle Earners account for kids. Looking for traditional savings and investment products like CDs, IRAs, and Money Markets? We have those too!
  • Financial Wellness. Most importantly, we want our members and community to be financially healthy. We have a team of Certified Financial Coaches who are available to help you with budgeting, investment questions, debt reduction, and any other financial topic you need help with - for free!
